# How do you graph 3x-5y=-9?

May 20, 2018

$y = \frac{3}{5} x + \frac{9}{5}$

#### Explanation:

$3 x - 5 y = - 9$

let's convert it to slope point form $y = m x + b$

$3 x - 5 y = - 9$

$- 5 y = - 3 x - 9$

$\frac{- 5 y}{-} 5 = \frac{- 3 x - 9}{-} 5$

$y = \frac{3}{5} x + \frac{9}{5}$

so the slope $m = \frac{3}{5}$ and the y-intercept $b = \frac{9}{5}$

graph{y=3/5x+9/5 [-11.875, 8.125, -3.4, 6.6]}
